Expert Advice from Dr Ross Perry

Now Magazine takes a look at embarrassing body issues, including bladder weakness, irritable bowel syndrome and acne, describing them as ‘the 3 body issues we’re too embarrassed to talk about… but really should’. 

The feature on acne explains that the condition is not confined to teenagers, as 5% of women over the age of 25 have acne.

Adult Acne

Dr Ross Perry of Cosmedics was asked to give his expert views:

“It’s very distressing and can lead to stress and anxiety about going out, it can particularly affect one’s confidence at work”

Acne Treatments

Dr Ross Perry explains the approach to treating acne:

“Like with most skin conditions they’re ‘managed’ rather than ‘cured’.

“This can be done with medicated creams and prescription medicines as well as laser and skin peel treatments.”
